CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Corpus Christi's Animal Care Services were called out to a drainage ditch near Saratoga and Kostoryz Tuesday morning after a three to four-foot alligator was spotted by some pedestrians.

Officers called in the help of Texas Parks and Wildlife to try and capture and relocate the alligator, but game wardens determined that it was in a natural habitat. They will monitor the area to see if it will return.
